Home About Payment Shipping & Returns Contact Store Categories FENDER USA Stratocaster Elite " Olympic White + Rosewood" (1983) Description A tribute to a guitar great with the features many players love! The Elite Series Strat is made for versatility. From smoldering blues to full on rock, this guitar delivers. The body is made of alder for great tone. The 25.5 inch maple V neck features 12 inch Flat radius maple fingerboard with 22 Jumbo style frets. A trio of Alnico II single coil pickups are hooked to an innovative noise-cancelling pickup system with a dummy coil between the lead and the middle pickups. Also Includes 13 active electronics with a special preamp circuitry including MDX (mid-range) and TBX (high-range) controls for everything from sparkling clean to all out woman tone. Vintage style tuners and a FreeFlyte Tremelo System round out the hardware. A cool custom engraved Elite neckplate is very Hip. The finish is a classic Olympic White. A great guitar for anyone needing great Strat Vintage tone. Thanks to a comfy V neck, this Elite Strat plays great. The frets are good and the neck is straight. The original Noiseless Dummy pickups dish out a ton of tones and the circuitry adds lots of versatility. Everything from trademark Strat spank to all Vintage Blues crunch. A really cool instrument. This is a nice Solid guitar. Although its very clean, i need to mention two in-discrepancies, In that their is some minor surface swirling from pick swirls. Secondly, the finish has a few very minor impressions in places. That being said, these are hardly noticeable, as one can see from the pictures below. Apart from this the Guitar is in Excellent Condition for its age. Comes in Original Fender hardshell case. I've mentioned it many times, but I'm a big fan of the Elite Series. The tone, while not exactly your vintage Strat tone, does have a Strat-like tone (bridge/middle and neck/middle), however, it's more full and rich, falling somewhere between a Strat and a Gibson solid body. With its use of 3 on/off switches instead of a 5-way switch, it has the added benefit of neck/bridge and neck/middle/bridge settings, giving you 7 tones in all.
